The effects of aging and sun damage can dramatically alter the appearance of your face, and it can be challenging to minimize these changes. While facial creams and makeup can help hide imperfections like dry and sun-damaged skin, they are only quick fixes and do very little to keep your skin healthy. Treatments like chemical peels, while effective, involve harsh chemicals that may not be appropriate for all skin types. Luckily, Dr. Jimenez offers an alternative solution to treat damaged skin while rejuvenating your face. HydraFacial® provides relief from fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, oily skin, and more by nourishing the skin.
Benefits of HydraFacial®
Exfoliation and Cleansing
The HydraFacial® device uses interchangeable tips for each step of your treatment. The first step of the HydraFacial® process is the cleansing of your skin. A gentle exfoliating device moves along your skin, pulling up any impurities from the outermost layer while exposing the smoother, healthier skin underneath.
The second step involves the application of a proprietary serum containing salicylic acid and glycolic acid. This helps to loosen up the dirt and debris that may be clogging your pores and dulling your skin tone. Then, The Medical Spa staff will use the device to extract impurities with gentle suction.
In the final step, an antioxidant formula containing hyaluronic acid and peptides is applied. This serum helps to detoxify your skin and protect it against future damage.
HydraFacial® is performed on an outpatient basis and takes no more than 20 minutes. No downtime is required; you can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment. Make sure you apply plenty of sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin from harmful UV rays.
You will see immediate improvement after your HydraFacial® treatment. One treatment will give you noticeable results, but many patients find continued improvement with regular sessions throughout the year. To maintain your healthy, blemish-free skin, it is recommended that you have regular treatments approximately once every month or two.
HydraFacial® is a soothing, refreshing, and non-irritating treatment that does not harm the skin or cause any discomfort during your session.
HydraFacial® does not require any incisions, and there will be no scars following your treatment.
